The Plate Demounter removes the printing plates and mounting tape from sleeves, without any damage to either the plate or the sleeve. This helps the flexo printer to:
> reduce the costs incurred due to damages
> save time in the pre-press department
> boost the efficiency on the floor
The Plate Demounter
The Demounter is a machine mainly designed to prevent damaging the printing plates and sleeves. The Demounter efficiently removes the flexographic printing plates and mounting tape from sleeves, without any damage. Along with saving plates, the machine will also save time and allow the operator to focus on other activities in the prepress department.
A motor driven silicon roller generates friction to pull the printing plates and mounting tape off the printing sleeve or cylinder. The roller divides equal force along the entire width of the printing plate, as opposed to the edges, which protects the printing plates from any damage.
1. The operator loads the printing sleeve onto the shaft (one-size-fits-all), peels of the edge of the printing plate and holds it against the silicon roller.
2. The foot pedal is pressed to move the silicon roller.
3. The operator unloads the printing sleeve from the shaft.
Pneumatic cones for applying tape
Pnematic cones can be added to hold the sleeve of any size in place when tape is being applied on the sleeve.
A special rounded blade provides a constant angle and pressure, preventing sleeve damage while cutting tape.
